Even though Hillary Clinton is no longer the Secretary of State, she is still getting her hours in around the country. This time, it’s in private equity.

Clinton recently spoke at a private equity event in California with about 400 people in attendance. Here she answered questions from KKR co-founder, Henry Kravis on politics, business and more. Last year, KKR partnered with Clinton by creating an infrastructure improvement plan as part of the Clinton Global Initiative.

More recently, Hillary Clinton is scheduled to speak at the private equity firm the Carlyle Group’s investor conference next month. The moderator of the discussion is the group’s founder, David Rubenstein, who is also a Democrat. Two sources familiar with the event confirmed Clinton’s attendance at the September 9th event in Washington.

At these type of events, she generally does a question-and-answer talk, instead of giving a speech.

According to multiple reports, her speaking fee per event is about $200,000. Bill Clinton’s highest paying speaking event after his presidency brought in $750,000 at a the telecom company Ericsson in Hong Kong.
